I have a friend IRL who is also dealing with IF. She will be 42 this year and has done 2 failed IVF cycles (one cycle was cx due to lack of response)
She was planning to do a DE cycle and had her FSH level checked it was a 9...she had it check a year ago and it was a 20. Her RE said they should start a cycle with her OEs now. She has agreed and is very excited. Fwd to today, had brunch with some friends, one is an Ob/Gyn. I was telling her about my friend and she said once you have an elevated FSH, even if the numbers go down it doesnt matter. She did say that she could possibly still get pregnant but all her training says that she will not.
You guys know how hard a failed cycle is financially and even harder emotionally. Do I tell my friend what my dr friend said? I feel like if there is a chance it could work, who am I to say anything. I also feel like my Ob/Gyn, although a great Dr isnt a RE and if the RE of my IF friend didnt have a concern, who am I to say anything...I am FAR from being a dr of anything.
